According to a new survey from Fitness Magazine, you’re likely to choose being poor over being fat. The survey says that the majority of women (63%) and men (55%) would choose to be poor at their ideal weight rather than be rich and substantially overweight. More than half of both women (58%) and men (54%) also say they’d prefer to be without a job rather than have 75 extra pounds of weight to carry around.
When it came to fat and smarts, however, there was a large reversal. Even though over half were willing to trade money for fat, three out of four men and four out of five of women indicated that they would be unwilling to trade 20 intelligence-quotient points for the perfect body.
Which would you choose? Rich and 75 pounds overwight or poor with a nice body?
